CWSA Hanging Plate Match -- 07/08/07
The basic format is to take six shots in six seconds at 6 steel plates. You do this three times from 10, 15, 20, and 25 yards. The 10 yard plates are 4" in diameter, and each 5 yards you move back ,the plates are 1" larger, finishing up at 25 yards with 7" plates. Your score is the number of plates you hit, with a perfect score being 72.
When all the smoke had cleared, in the iron sight class Mike F. had posted one of the best scores ever shot at CWSA with 60 points. I straggled in to second place with 56.
The optical sight class was very close with several shooters in a position to win after the first and second rounds, with Mike F. leading by a couple of plates, followed by me, and KeeWee right behind us. Final scores after four rounds had Mr. C. with 68, Mike F. with 63, and KeeWee with 56.
Everyone had a grand time, lots of jokes and kidding around, and we all had lots of fun.
After all, this is only a game, and if you aren't enjoying yourselves, why not go find something that you DO enjoy, and do that instead, instead of taking it so seriously that it stops being fun?
